The 2013 Geneva Motor Show has been a hypercar-loaded show, there’s no doubt about that, but at the same time, it has been an auto show of contrast. First, there was the long-awaited Enzo successor, which is a masterpiece of design and engineering, if you ask, but with the lame name of LaFerrari. Then there was the P1, a car with a great amount of power, but with a design that does not make it worthy of its name. And finally, there was the new Veneno - the most un-Lamborghini-looking Lamborghini we have ever seen.
However, the list doesn’t stop here. Koenigsegg celebrated 100 cars built in 10 years (what?!) with the one-off edition Agera Hundra, while Pagani decided to improve, not the Huayra, but its sound system.
This seems to be the perfect climate to start making crazy statements, no? Koenigsegg officials claimed at the show, that with all the 2013 improvements, the Agera R can easily beat all the other supercars we saw at the show. The Agera is lighter, more powerful and can hit a greater top speed - at least on paper.
In order to prove its car is better, Koenigsegg will initially take it to Dunsfold, where it claims to obtain a better time than the Huayra - and that on standard road tires.
Cars UK claims this will be just the first step Koenigsegg will take in 2013 in its attempt to prove the Agera R is a superior car.
